Manage stress and anxiety naturally
Dealing with stress and anxiety is a natural and normal part of life. Sometimes it’s “good” stress – like having a baby or starting a new job and sometimes it’s “bad” stress – like dealing with the uncertainty of a global pandemic. What determines the effect that good or bad stress has on the body is the length of time that we are exposed to the stressor and the measures we take to combat its effects.
It may surprise you to hear that 75-90% of all doctor’s visits are related to stress. Stress is often the underlying cause of issues ranging from chronic headaches to digestive disorders to heart problems and even chronic pain. It is safe to say that if stress is left unaddressed it will often manifest as a bigger, more complicated problem down the road.
How Acupuncture Helps Reduce Stress and Anxiety
- Regular acupuncture will activate the parasympathetic nervous system, the part of our body responsible for “resting and digesting.”
- Studies confirm that acupuncture can lower cortisol levels and increase endorphins making us feel happier and more calm.
- Acupuncture can help improve your quality of sleep which also helps to improve how to function during the day.

It's time to feel in control again
For many of us, we’ve been dealing with the mounting stress for months or even years. It’s accepted as a “normal” part of our lives. The problem is that we’ve not taken the time needed to balance out our busy, hectic schedules. Regular acupuncture sessions can regulate your body’s stress response making you feel less anxious and out of control.
